This Privacy Policy covers CeliTax's treatment of your personally identifiable information ("Personal Data") and other data that we gather when you use our Service. By using CeliTax, you are consenting to the terms described in our Privacy Policy as well as our Terms of Use, located at http://celitax.ca/terms_of_service.html

At Celitax, we take your privacy seriously. CeliTax works when you upload photos of your receipts. We understand that information on your receipts can sometimes be sensitive. Thus, we want to ensure you are absolutely comfortable with what information is collected when you participate with CeliTax and are knowledgeable as to how this information is used.


1. What personal data does CeliTax collect?

  • Personal Data you provide. We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information. This includes when you register for CeliTax (for example, name, country and email address), use certain Services, upload receipts, or connect your CeliTax account to online third party services such as Facebook, Twitter or other social networks. The information we receive from your social networks, is dependent upon your privacy settings with the social network. You should always review, and if necessary, adjust your privacy settings on third-party websites and services before linking or connecting them to our website or Service.

  • Receipt Data. When you upload receipts to CeliTax, we do not collect information contained on the receipts, we simply store them for your convenience (collectively, "Receipt Data").

2. How does CeliTax use my Personal Data?

  • CeliTax uses any Personal Data you supply to deliver the service you expected when you gave us the Personal Data. For example, we use this information to display on the mobile application. When you provide your name and email address when you log in, we use this information to identify your account so you can use our service. By agreeing to use CeliTax, you are agreeing to allow us to use your Personal Data to help us improve CeliTax and to contact you regarding the Services. However, you are free to opt-out from allowing us to do so. See "Your Choices Regarding Your Information" below to learn how to opt-out of any further messages of this nature from us.

3. How does CeliTax share my Personal Data?

CeliTax considers your Personal Data an essential part of our relationship with you and a key component in delivering you a great service. We do not sell this information or provide it to third parties except as described in this Privacy Policy. There are times though when we need to share this data with certain third parties in order to operate our business. These circumstances are described below:

  • Business transactions and related companies: As we operate CeliTax we may buy or sell business assets or the company, merge with other companies, reorganize or dissolve. Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets during any of these events. Consistent with this Privacy Policy, we may also share your Personal Data with our affiliates.

  • Anonymized Aggregated Data: As described above, we aggregate and anonymize data and use and disclose such information for a variety of purposes. However, in these situations, we do not disclose any information that could be used to identify you personally.

  • Receipt Data: From time to time, using encryption technology, we may compare our member database with our clients' or partner' databases to discover overlap between their registered customers and our registered members. When we find overlap - i.e. that our members are also their registered customers ("Matched Members") - we may share with those clients or partners Receipt Data relating to those Matched Members. We do not provide those clients or partners with your name, address, email address, or any other contact information, but our clients or partners may already have this information about you in their databases. Our clients or partners may use any Receipt Data we share as permitted under their own privacy policies, including to contact you and/or to send you targeted advertising or promotional materials. We urge you to review the privacy policies of every company you register your personal information with. If you do not want your Receipt Data shared with our clients or partners for these purposes, please contact us at Justin.gravelle@celitax.com.

  • Law and Harm; Jurisdictions: We may preserve or disclose your information if we believe that it is reasonably necessary to comply with a law, regulation or legal request; to protect the safety of any person; to address fraud, security or technical issues or a breach of our Terms of Use; or to protect our or any other person's rights or property. However, nothing in this Privacy Policy is intended to limit any legal defenses or objections that you may have to a third party's, including a government's, request to disclose your information. Finally, please note that in some cases, personal information that we collect may be stored or processed outside of Canada. In such cases, we continue to protect the information with appropriate safeguards, but it may be subject to the legal jurisdiction of those countries and governmental authorities in those countries.

4. Your choices regarding your information
